Sounds like they had to jump through some hoops.

Avalon's spirits rising
Restored music hall holds the city's past

The ghost of Janis Joplin hides in the corners of the Avalon Ballroom, where she played her first show with Big Brother and the Holding Company in June 1966. It was the first place she was ever a star. For more than 30 years, it has been hidden behind the walls of a movie theater called the Regency.

Steve Shirley, 31, grew up named Morning Spring Rain with the Hog Farm commune, unrepentant hippies who live outside Laytonville in Mendocino County. He rented the Avalon last October for a trial run and immediately booked the current edition of Big Brother and the Holding Company. "It was symbolic that I had them in there," he said.

If it's only "apparent" I suppose it would be just as apparent to any astute reader, and therefore doesn't need to be pointed out. However, for anyone for whom this is still puzzling, the Avalon definitely is in San Francisco!
